Amy Marty Leroy-Gelb, 1975,
Notable career in cheer and dance
Amy was a cheerleader throughout her four years at Colby High School (also at Colby Community Junior College and Arizona State University) and went on to establish a very notable career associated with cheer and dance. For the past 15 years, she has been President and Director of Arizona Angels Studio, Inc., of which she is the founder and primary owner. As director and lead instructor, Amy has had a profound positive impact on the lives of hundreds of girls. She has also provided them with life-changing experiences such as performing at the Goodwill Games in Australia and, very recently, in the 2005 Inaugural Parade in Washington , DC .
Ernst & Young named Amy ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ in the year 2000 for her great accomplishments, including extraordinary community and charitable involvement. She serves on committees for The Emily Fashion Show Teen Group, MDA, the Arizona Girls Ranch and the Fiesta Bowl. Amy and the Arizona Angels have made over 300 appearances for charity functions and heart-felt events such as The Ronald McDonald House, Special Olympics, Open-Door Shelter, City of Hope, Faith House, Phoenix Children's Hospital, American Heart Association, Leukemia Society, American Diabetes Foundation and many more. She was also named '2002 Arizona Spirit Association Coach of the Year', and won the title of Mrs. Arizona-America in 1991. Needless to say, I am very proud of my sister, as are our parents, Donald L. and Ella L. Marty (now residing in Chandler, AZ ), and her husband, Michael Gelb.
